Should I worry yet?

So, are there any hardcore Married With Children fans? 


I am one and I have all of the original episodes on VHS still :)


I ask this because I want you to recall the episode where Al starts getting lucky. Car runs good, he wins at his poker games, nothing but beautiful women come into the shoe store, etc. But then he gets worried because of the Bundy Curse. This is where, once a Bundy starts building up good luck, an equally amount of bad luck is building up getting ready to unleash itself. That was a funny episode because EVERYTHING went wrong in the end.


So, you know I have been posting about winning books. Well, I did not mention a site, and I have to get the name, where I had one a great book "The Wet and the Dry" by Lawrence Osborne. That was the first book I had one that was not goodreads or booklikes. 

Well, Kirkus reviews has been running a contest. You answer a question a day for 80 days and win a best selling book each day if you are chosen, and then the grand prize is an ipad. So I have been reading the hints and answering the questions. They describe a book and you have to provide the correct answer to get an entry. I got an email today that I won a book. I do not know which one. I just had to get them my information in 24 hours to be able to get this book. I have seen some of the ones they give away to the winners and they are awesome books.
So I will tell you when it comes.
How much bad luck does approximately 50 or more free books add up to? Should I get to Doomsday Prepping? :)
